E.J. Viso, Starworks #78 DP: “I am very excited to start my second Daytona 24, and for a second time with Starworks. I believe that the line-up we have for it is great and it’s probably one of my favorite races so far in my career. It is definitely one that challenges everyone; the teams, drivers and even the spectators. I am ready and really looking forward to it and hopefully many more races with Starworks."
Sebastian Saavedra, Starworks #78 DP: “I am very excited with this last minute situation. I would like to thank Peter (Baron) for the invitation to join the very successful Starworks family. I am opened minded about what’s going to happen this weekend; we have a great line-up of drivers, so I am focusing on doing the best job and hopefully some watches with it."
